Corporations don't control the internet, yet. You can visit Google or Facebook but they're not the internet. Amazingly, these giant corporations exist right alongside smaller independent websites. Startups and activists working to lessen their power and create something independent that allows more freedom and is less intrusive than the big corporations. But now, that's changing! The telecom companies we use to access the internet are giving corporate giants like Facebook special treatment. Sometimes it's a marketing trick. Other times it's for profit, they sell special treatment. Either way, the result is the same: a terrible new future where all telecom giants and new internet giants conspire to remain in control.
Forever. A future where videos on cooperate sites work but on smaller sites they break. A future where expensive phone calls work but free phone calls over the internet break. A future where giant corporate sites are subsidized to appear free but independent sites are so expensive to access, no one visits them. This future may be coming to Europe. By August, EU regulators will make their final decision. Prohibit special treatment with strong net neutrality rules or hand the internet future to the cooperate giants of telecom and tech. In the United States, Brazil and India, net neutrality activists and small startups have been winning with millions of messages to regulators an protests in the streets.
